Following a successful trial, the Xiplink™ solution is now being used on two Irish Ferries vessels, W.B. YEATS and ULYSSES.
From the user perspective, the biggest benefit of the new Xiplink™ service is the substantially improved quality of experience enjoyed when accessing the internet.
From the perspective of Irish Ferries, it also offers QoS data management, thus affording the most important connections the highest priority throughout.
Brian Short, Information Security Manager at Irish Continental Group, said “Managing the bandwidth demands of multiple data and voice services has been a challenge. The traffic management and bandwidth optimisation features offered by Xiplink have been instrumental in enhancing the onboard experience for our customers, while also protecting revenue-generating services. Our partnerships with Voyager IP and Telenor have been vital to the success of this project, and we look forward to working with them to further develop our use of Xiplink.”
